    Upratnas are semi precious alternatives of the 9 primary gemstones listed above. All Upratnas deliver good results in silver. Majority of the Upratnas barring the gemstone of the moon-blue sheen moonstone all Upratnas can be worn in gold also.

    What about Panchdhatu/ Ashtdhathu and their use in Astrology Gemstones

    Certain authors advocate the use of Panch Dhatu( A mixture of 5 metals) and Asht Dhatu( mixture of 8 metals) for making rings and pendants for Blue Sapphire, Hessonite and Cat’s Eye, however these recommendations do not carry universal sanction and are not mentioned in any standardized text. Recommendations listed as the table given above have statistically proven to deliver the best results.

    What about platinum and its use for Astrology Gemstones

    Nowadays, a lot of jewellery is being made from platinum. Diamonds especially are set in platinum. However at the time when the sacred texts were written Platinum had not been discovered. Hence there is no statistical data available whether any gemstone or Diamond set in platinum shall deliver equal or better results.
